Is the level in the coolant bottle when checked on a completely cold engine slowly dropping over a period of a few days ?

My questions was when the engine was completely cold, not while driving. Over a period of a few days when the engine is completely cold is the level in the bottle dropping below the midpoint?

It's normal to see water vapor coming out of the exhaust pipe. Condensation collects in the exhaust system after it cools down and it gets vaporized when the engine is started up and running.

The head gasket could be blown or the head could be cracked, there's no coolant going thru the turbo. You need to do a compression test that will tell you if it's bad.
